At about the one minute mark in the video below, the guy adjusts the sound levels of the instruments to a live recording as a demo on how this thing works. If I one day have this setup in my basement/mancave, will I be able to adjust any recording here on the archive of the boys, or just shows that were recorded over more then 2 tracks? Will I be able to really turn Phil up one day at my own discretion? Peace

first, lets clarifyn if you really meant "desecration" which is....The word 'desecration' means blasphemous behavior; the act of depriving something of its sacred character!! or did you mean "discretion"???

Yeah, I imagine the only way you would be able to turn up Mr. Lesh (and turn down Donna) would be if you had access to the multi-track recordings.

I don't know how much you know about audio, but every recording you hear on the archive is two tracks (the left and right channel). Even if the show was recording on 8 or 16 tracks, it has to be mixed down to two tracks to be played by current systems.

The video doesn't tell if they are working with a 2-track, commercially available recording, or the multi-track.

I don't think technology is yet good enough to let us boost and cut individual instruments on a commercially recorded CD .
